Love the 52'. The 36' I just recently put a mulch kit on. Really liking the combination. Yes it's a great setup for flat 1 acre and below yards maybe more.

Like everything the mowers have there place. The 52' is very forgiving, you can huck it around the yards with little to no turf tear. The 36' is good too, but you have to baby the turns to minimize turf tear.

The 36' will rut with the ground saturated, otherwise it's fine. For that reason, I may add a 30' Exmark push or WB next year to complete my fleet.

I've rotated 6 or 7 TT's (all 48's, all I use) through the biz over I don't remember how long.
I tend to rack up the hours-the newest one, a 2012 has 830 hours on it.
They've been pretty solid stripers.
